Looking good so far, and the wood work is great.

Thanks all, it will keep me busy all winter that's for sure.

I retired from my "career job" in 2015 but have been doing the MC repair from 2013 on.
Got way too busy so had to cut back. Still have a handful of customers, mostly the folks I ride with.

BTW I do have a F-Head Willys engine to rebuild and install if I ever want to go back to near stock.
The 259 was in it when I bought it.

You don't know how close you came to having me back again in June. I had the same brake issue as I entered WY on my way out to the IBR in June. I opted to continue on to SLC and bleed them first which worked for about a week or so. Then whenever it got hot they started fading but was able to pump them up.
